Rewind and Relax

The end of the year is a ton of fun. Lots of holiday parties to attend, lots of family and friends to see. But it can also be a lot of stress. Lots of Christmas shopping to get done, lots of last-minute deadlines to finish up.

I’ve been feeling the grunt of hard work lately, with my entire body wounded tight like a knot.

That’s when you know it’s time to go to the spa!

I checked in at Bliss Spa at the W Hotel in Hollywood and was hooked up with an Elemis Exotic Lime & Ginger Salt Glow for my entire body. It was (for lack of a better word) bliss.


After changing, I was offered some yummy champagne, crackers, and cheese.  Then, I was led to the massage room where the treatment began.

I’m not gonna lie, I’m kind of a newbie at this whole body treatment stuff and it’s definitely a vulnerable state to be in.

Think about it, you’re naked and a specialist is dripping warm oil luxuriously all over your body.  Then, the exotic lime and ginger salt glow scrub is brushed on.  I kind of felt like a chicken getting ready to get baked.  (But in the best way possible!)

All of my anxieties subsided once I got on the massage bed.  Elemis is known for some of the most exotic and indulgent spa-therapies for face and body and it was definitely an unbeatably relaxing experience.  Catering to all my senses, I got to smell and feel the tranquility of the Elemis spa treatment for an entire hour.  It was far too short, if you ask me!

Bliss is also offering take-home versions of Elemis’ skin and body treatments available in all of its 15 U.S. locations and internationally in its London spa. I walked away with a goody bag full of them which I will be trying out over the next couple of weeks.
